Hi.. my question is good for linux x86 or x84..? thx..

Ion, 2013/01/04 11:38

Functioneaza perfect, folosesc Ubuntu 12.10 pe x32 . problema cu camera ramine inca, la fel o arata cu josul in sus, dar usor se rezolva cu -
Intoarcere webcamera
1 - sudo apt-get install libv4l-0
2 - sudo gedit /usr/share/applications/skype.desktop
3 - in ridul numarul 4, dupa cum urmeaza in doc deschis
4 - Exec=skype
reinscriem urmatorul:
4
Exec=bash -c 'LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libv4l/v4l1compat.so skype'
- problema detectarea castilor, paremise s'a rezolvat.

Hey Tartamas, hope everything is going well…

Please take this comment in consideration to solve the issue with the hibernate:

Suspend problem:

sudo gedit /etc/pm/sleep.d/20_custom-ehci_hcd

- Put lines below to the file

#!/bin/sh
# File: ”/etc/pm/sleep.d/20_custom-ehci_hcd”.
case “${1}” in

      hibernate|suspend)
            # Unbind ehci_hcd for first device 0000:00:1a.0:
             echo -n "0000:00:1a.0" | tee /sys/bus/pci/drivers/ehci_hcd/unbind
            # Unbind ehci_hcd for second device 0000:00:1d.0:
             echo -n "0000:00:1d.0" | tee /sys/bus/pci/drivers/ehci_hcd/unbind
      ;;
      resume|thaw)
            # Bind ehci_hcd for first device 0000:00:1a.0:
            echo -n "0000:00:1a.0" | tee /sys/bus/pci/drivers/ehci_hcd/bind
            # Bind ehci_hcd for second device 0000:00:1d.0:
            echo -n "0000:00:1d.0" | tee /sys/bus/pci/drivers/ehci_hcd/bind
      ;;

esac

- Save file and close editor

sudo chmod +x /etc/pm/sleep.d/20_custom-ehci_hcd

Please let me know if it works, to assist you further…

Pura vida…!!!

When I want to hang-up or hibernate, it doesn't switch off and I can not restore it.

Angel, 2011/10/17 02:33

How did u guys got the boot from usb option in the Asus K52F? I just dont see that in the BIOS. Any help?

Jose, 2011/09/09 04:26

Well my computer was working perfectly with Linux Mint 10 (I never remember the distro's name). It was working smooth with MAC 4 Lin. I just got tired with the same presentation. I changed to Linux Mint 10 KDE graphic. At this moment keep working on some issues, like no sound, not from the headphone nor even the speakers. So as soon as I get this resolved I will post here again. Thanks for all the information it is very helpful.

NOTE: the laptop ASUS K52F is a perfect machine for this budget.

sebwebdev, 2011/02/19 08:03

On Ubunutu 10.10 64bit I could resolve the headphone issue like this:

1. nano /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf

2. add at end of file: “options snd-hda-intel model=hp-laptop”

3. reboot

Michael Heiming, 2011/02/03 07:37

As for the cam upside-down problem added, where the other definitions are, in the source of libv4l and recompiled the complete rpm:

lib/libv4lconvert/control/libv4lcontrol.c

      { 0x13d3, 0x5130, 0, "ASUSTeK Computer Inc.        ", "K52F",
              V4LCONTROL_HFLIPPED | V4LCONTROL_VFLIPPED }, 


Check with lsusb + dmidecode, there seem to be numerous different cams ASUS uses!

Now with things runs smooth on 64bit Fedora 14:

env LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libv4l/v4l1compat.so skype

Dropped the maintainer a mail with the line.

starship trooper, 2010/12/26 01:32

Using the Germany Amazon supplied A52F with P6100 under 10.04.1 LTS, 2.6.32-27-generic shows only minor quirks:

NO Fan Control possible - and possibly never (BIOS not ACPI)! (currently not an issue, because up to 55 degree Celsius CPU temp it's fan is running with lowest speed and very quietly)

C3 & C4 states not supported - TLP author thinks some power reduction still possible. Currently maxes out at 12.5 W appx. 3.5 hours battery life in average browsing on WLAN b/g

Thanks for information!

A very interesting and thorough discussion of the current problems of the Aus k52 under Ubuntu, along with solutions for most of them.

Gerhard Kremer, 2010/05/18 10:09

Solved the headphones issue compiling and running the daemon in

http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1043568&page=14

as superuser under Ubuntu 10.04.

(Use g++ instead of gcc).

Gerhard Kremer, 2010/05/14 12:41

Solved the “camera upside-down” problem by updating to the latest libv4l from PPA and calling e.g. Skype with

LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib32/libv4l/v4l1compat.so skype

Put this in a bash script called skypewrap.sh (or a symlink to it) somewhere in your $PATH and the problem disappears.

Hibernate and Sleep do not work

Norek, 2010/05/03 12:04

Ubuntu 10.04 LTS released, but hibernate/suspend still dosn't work. Everything else works fine what i think.
